1889 Elgin Nat'l Watch Co Pocket Watch Keeps Time Well Works Ser No 3781441 in 33mm Fahy's Conqueror No 1 Watch Case. The face is white with black numerals and hands and the name ELGIN. The serial number of the works dates back to 1889. The case has three hinged covers, one on the front and two at the rear. The front cover opens when the stem is pressed. The watchcase and ring are all fine yellow gold in color. The discoloration in the pictures is a product of the lighting and my poor picture taking skills. No brass shows. Someone did make a small scratch inside the front cover and another small scratch inside the inner rear cover, apparently testing to determine whether the case was carat gold (it isn't – it is gold plated or gold filled). Otherwise the case is in excellent vintage condition. Inside the outer rear cover appear, "FAHY'S CONQUEROR NO.1" and serial number, "177253". There are also marks by a watchmaker. The exterior of the case is 33mm in diameter. The watch works are labeled, "Elgin Nat'l Watch Co.", "safety pinion" and the serial number, "3781441". The works are adjustable. The watch works well. This 120-year-old watch is a beautiful and functional piece of history.
